Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

Familiar characters are also expected to turn up, including would-be love interest Meryl Silverburgh (apparently not dead)andblond prettyboy Raiden, who has the distinction of being the single most hated character in the franchise (although Kojima swears he'll be likeable this time around.) Don't get too excited, though. This one won't be out till it's ready, and battlefield veterans are betting on a 2007 debut.

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
